Blog Contributors

 

We’re looking for awesome writers to join our WPMU DEV Blog team as ongoing contributors.

The WPMU DEV Blog is the largest online resource for quality WordPress tutorials, publishing informative, creative and in-depth articles that cover recent developments within the industry to more than 1.5 million visitors each month.

We work with writers all over the world and our current team is made up of developers, freelancers and bloggers who all specialize in WordPress. From in-depth tutorials, to opinion pieces, personal stories and product/service reviews, this is your chance to dig deep and have your work read by millions of people.

The contributor role involves:

  • Writing in-depth, comprehensive articles about a variety of WordPress topics, from security and optimization to development and Multisite,
  • Meeting weekly publication deadlines, and
  • Regularly coming up with new and exciting ideas for WordPress-related articles.

It doesn’t matter where you’re based, location is unimportant. The important thing is that you’re communicative, whether that be over email or Slack. We’re a distributed company, after all.

How many articles you would like to write for us is entirely up to you, though we are looking for individuals with personality who can write quality stuff with expertise and authority. We will not be accepting applications from syndicates that can knock out 10 articles a week.

We get a lot of interest from people who want to write for our blog. In order to maintain the high quality of our articles, however, we need you to show us what you’ve got by jumping through a couple of hoops. We need two things from you:

  • URLs to any articles or examples that demonstrate your skills as a writer and WordPress expert, and
  • Three solid suggestions for articles you are interested in writing and could see being published on our blog. Please include an outline for the structure of your articles.

Please include your URLS and article suggestions with your application below. If you neglect to include these required details, chances are you won’t get a reply because you didn’t read this job ad :) (and if you’re reading this right now, awesome! Most people, about 90%, don’t!)

When we review your articles/examples, we’ll be looking for:

  • Clarity – How well you are able to explain a topic
  • Comprehensiveness – Does your article cover *everything* there is to know about the topic?
  • Spelling and grammar – This is basic stuff. We’re looking for writers who need few edits
  • Native-level written English

All of our contributors are paid, but just how much depends on the length and quality of your articles. Before we publish your work, we always make sure both sides agree on the publishing and payment conditions. Of course, you are welcome to include a link to your website on your author profile, should you join our writing team. This is a great opportunity for you to engage with people who read your articles, build your reputation in the WordPress community, and grow your social media following.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
